Rain barrels are a great way to reduce your footprint by capturing and using rain as your resource. The rainwater captured in your rain barrel is great for watering your garden or lawn. Rainwater is soft, and your plants will appreciate it. Plus, it saves you money on your water bill. Who doesn't love saving money these days?!

Participate in our Community Backyards program to receive a rebate for your yard. Take the online course or attend a workshop to receive a voucher for a rebate. The online course is open now, and we have workshops scheduled throughout the spring and summer. Tell a friend. Check it out: www.communitybackyards.org/
